Commentary by Islam's Sheikh Zakariyya alAnsari on Ibn alHā’im's Poem on the Science of Algebra and Balancing Called the Creator's Epiphany in Explaining the Cogent
This work is a commentary on a versified, 59line introduction to algebra, entitled AlMuqni‘ fī aljabr wa almuqābila, by the prolific and influential mathematician, jurist, and man of letters Abū al‘Abbās Shihāb alDīn Aḥmad ibn Muḥammad ibn ‘Alī alMaqdisī alShāfi‘ī, known as Ibn alHā’im (circa 13561412 [circa 753815 AH]). It clarifies the nomenclature and explains the basic concepts of algebra, and provides succinct examples. The manuscript, completed on Thursday night, 8 Sha‘bān 1305 AH (March 21, 1888), is in the hand of Tāhā ibn Yūsuf.


Glosses of alHifnī on the Yāsamīnīyya
This work is an elaboration of the commentary written by the Egyptian mathematician Sibṭ alMāridīnī (i.e., a commentary on another commentary), on the versified introduction, or urjūzah, to the science of algebra, originally composed by the Berber mathematician and man of letters Abū Muḥammad ‘AbdAllāh alIshbīlī alMarrakushī, also known as Ibn alYāsamīn (died 1204 [600 AH]). Ibn alYāsamīn’s work has not been examined in detail by scholars, so the apparent inclusion in this treatise of original lines by Ibn Yasamīn is of great importance in studying his contribution ...


The Shimmer of AlMāridinī in the Explanation of the Treatise by alYāsamīn
The mathematical tradition that flourished in North Africa and Andalusia during the Middle Ages did not undergo the same decline that many scholars claim occurred in the sciences after the first half of the 13th century. The present work supports this point. The manuscript is a very elegant copy of a mathematical text by Badr alDīn Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad ibn alĠazal, best known as Sibṭ alMāridīnī ("the son of alMāridīnī’s daughter") from the name of his famous maternal grandfather, who was himself a mathematician. Sibṭ alMāridīnī's mathematical ...


The Commentary of the Šayḫ, the Head, the Extremely Knowledgeable Aḥmad alŠāfiʻī alJanājī alMālikī on the Commentary of the Šayḫ alIslām Zakarīyā alAnṣārī on the Compendium on the Science of Algebra and Equations by Ibn alHāʼim
The Arabic mathematical tradition, which flourished during the Middle Ages, transmitted and enriched the knowledge derived from Greek and Indian sources. Arabic mathematicians further developed these studies, seeking to answer theoretical as well as practical problems. Medieval Arabic mathematical treatises were extensively copied, studied, and commented upon in subsequent centuries, as exemplified in this manuscript. This supercommentary (commentary on a commentary) by Aḥmad Muhammad alŠāfiʻī alJanājī alMālikī elucidates an earlier commentary by Zakarīyā ibn Muḥammad alAnṣārī (circa 1420–1519) on a work by Aḥmad ibn Muḥammad alFarāḍī ibn alHāʼim (circa ...
